It's the most wonderful time of the year here at The Pingry School! Students have returned, extracurricular activities are taking place, lots of learning is happening, and relationships are being developed. In addition to all of these exciting happenings across our campuses, Pingry is delighted to introduce you to the newest members of our talented team for the 2021-22 school year.

Visual Arts

The Visual Arts program at Pingry is designed to foster the development of aesthetic insights and appreciation on a personal, social, and cultural level. Through wide exposure and critical examination, the Pingry student can develop a lasting appreciation, understanding, and enjoyment of art. Our program provides students with a wide range of opportunities for participation in the art program, allowing them to study many media in depth.

On a personal level, the Visual Arts program strives to challenge students to: see in new ways and develop creativity through personal expression of their thoughts, ideas and emotions; develop character and a positive self-image by fostering the growth of problem-solving skills; cultivate their intellectual curiosity by presenting a broad range of visual studies; discover and improve new skills, strengths, and interests; and enhance their sensitivity and introspection through critical analysis of personal works.

On a social level, the Visual Arts program aims to challenge students to: examine their environments in new and different ways; respect, appreciate, and support the creative efforts of others; and examine and objectively analyze the culture they have inherited and the range of roles and responsibilities they can assume within it.

On a cultural level, the Visual Arts program aims to encourage seeing and expressing in new ways, thereby enriching lives and leading to a more thorough understanding of today’s pluralistic, global art world.

Note: Due to the wide selection of course offerings in studio art and due to fluctuations in enrollment, some courses may be offered on an alternate-year basis.
